DIY Light Fixture

Sunday, March 1, 2015

I think it adds something unexpected to the kitchen and I'm glad I finally had the guts to do it. We also bought some retro dining chairs at the Habitat Restore for $5 each. They will take some work, but I think they will be a fun project to refinish to hoard sell eventually. Maybe a maternity leave project?
